WALKING THE TALK: Putting Racial and Cultural Equity Values into Practice

On Thurs, March 28th, 1:00-2:30pm EST, please join us for a webinar on different approaches to grounding equity commitments through training, program design, and day-to-day practices—from both community-based and public sector perspectives. REGISTER HERE!

It’s an important step to state our beliefs in racial and cultural equity in these fraught times. It’s a bigger one to change what we do to make those beliefs a reality.
